No where do they state the known typical beauty requirements we have come to know in past. Additionally, while we believe we know their mission, their newly written qualifications stated on their website are as follows: "SHE SHOULD BE ABLE TO EXPRESS WHAT HER PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL GOALS WOULD BE DURING HER REIGN... "o.k., we all know that" THE WINNER MUST BE CONFIDENT ..."and we know that too"...SHE MUST UNDERSTAND THE VALUES OF OUR BRAND AND THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE TITLE. "this is the clunker --has anyone asked what the value of the brand is now since IMG purchased the pagent?... SHE MUST HAVE THE ABILITY TO ARTICULATE HER AMBITION. THE CONTESTANT SHOULD DEMONSTRATE AUTHENTICITY, CREDIBILITY, AND EXHIBIT GRACE UNDER PRESSURE. THE WOMEN WHO COMPETE, EMBODY THE MODERN, GLOBAL ASPIRATION FOR THE POTENTIAL WITHIN A WOMAN....(big key words: articulate = speak well in public settings and have presentation skills; have ambition = currently working towards a professional career goal; be authentic = stop the silly fake pageant patty crap and be yourself; credible = look intelligent and not just pretty; also "we will confirm what you write in your bio; Grace under pressure..."quick thinker and we don't have to worry that you'll say anything stupid", Modern = fashion forward so the young generation will love you and we can sell shit with you advertising products and brands; Global aspiration = able to think about things bigger than yourself and in a very, very liberal worldly way........... NOW FOR MY OPINION: The pageant hasn't anything to do with past traditional beauties that were selected based upon who's the prettiest or who's got the best body. They'd rather have an intellectually charismatic (7 in beauty) over a (10 in beauty with a hollow message about modeling and putting on make-up) any day. The whole fitness message is to mask that they keep the swimsuit portion of the competition. They're looking for poise but more personality within their speaking skills than anything. In my opinion, this is a personality and character competition which of course includes searching for the most pleasant to look at person that can model the NEW MISS UNIVERSE BRAND because women are more than a pleasant object to look at.

[> Subject: In Latin America, beauty pageants are only that.. BEAUTY pageants.. the prettiest wins, regardless of academic background or achievements. TV networks organize these pageants looking for new faces for their TV shows, movies, etc. So then this whole 'educational/story' thing is out of control. Let's get real: Women who are REALLY into education and empowering, stay AWAY from pageants. In fact, they loathe them. Miss Universe is ashamed of what they are and I guess they wanted to deviate away from Trump because of that, but it doesnt work

SO if they would just stop disguising the competition it would do better

[> [> Subject: For an expert on educated and empowered women, you sure know the message board address. Either way, you aren't empowering women by putting down those who enter Miss Universe. (Like the Geico Commerical: "That's not how this works....that's not how any of this works!"

[> [> [> [> Subject: If life experiences and clear definition of your future career path are the way IMG is headed, a lot of girls who have been crown chasing this crown for years and are still in the mindset that taking risqué photos for a nonexistent modeling career have been throwing good money away for a very long time. Love that IMG wants women with definitive ideas about their career paths and beauty all in their winners and not just crown chasers who are chasing a crown to make them a success.
